YOUR OLD COLLEGE FRIENDS

Back in the day, you loved hanging out in the local bars and getting drunk together, but do you want that sort of behaviour on your Wedding Day?

OPTION 1

Sit them all on the same rowdy table at the back of the room;

OPTION 2:

If you can’t beat them, join them and party together like you’re back in college.

UNRELIABLE USHERS

You know, the one who forgets he has a job to do by helping with the wedding day and spends the whole time propping up the bar, or coming onto one of the Bridesmaids…

OPTION 1:

Get the Best Man to write a clear list of tasks of what each of the Groomsmen should be doing on your Wedding Day.

OPTION 2:

Usually Ushers are the Bride or Groom’s brother, if that’s the case get Mom or Dad to sort him out!

THE DRUNK UNCLE

This is quite a common one at Weddings –  there’s always one family member (And yes it’s usually a man, I’m afraid) who thinks he’s an Adonis and spends the day letching at your Bridesmaid (I’ve got one in my family!)

OPTION 1:

This is a tricky guest to handle, so you may have to delegate another family member to handle him!

OPTION 2:

Make him part of the entertainment at your Wedding and laugh at him (You might want to warn your Bridesmaids beforehand though, of his tendencies)
